Boot Sale Pickups – Guns, Choppers and Disney!

I recently visited a boot sale and picked up some real bargains on some classic (and possibly not so classic) games! I don’t really collect games like I used to, but I do like a good bargain, and it’s always an excuse to discover new games to play.

This time around, I found a classic chopper game, a game based on a popular Disney film, and a very violent shooter – You won’t believe how much money I saved over eBay prices!

London Gaming Market #2 (Sunday 3rd April, 2016)

If you may remember, back in November I attended the London Gaming Market. Well, the Market returned once again in April, so I was there, camera in hand, so see what bargains there were to be found. While I was there, I spoke to a lot of great folks and had a really good time.

Once again, the Royal National Hotel in Russell Square, London, was the venue. This time around, a lot more thought had been put into making the most of the space, making for a far more pleasant event this time around. If you love videogames or boardgames, you’ll definitely want to attend one of these markets in future!

Watch this video to see who I spoke to, and what retrogaming goodies they purchased!

The London Gaming Market returns in July, so maybe I’ll see you there!

Sticky Bleachers Remembers the Chicago American Giants and the Cincinnati Clowns

The Sticky Bleachers Negro Leagues series continues with the Giants visiting the short-lived home of the Cincinnati/Indianapolis Clowns. The home team hangs a six-spot in the bottom of the first, but their bats go cold after the initial flurry. Chicago takes it in a sandlot-rules 10-run victory in seven innings.

Our Negro Leagues series is dedicated to remembering those who played before the game was open to all.

Games are simulated on R.B.I. Baseball for NES with a Negro Leagues 1943 roster patch by Baron von Lector.

Special thanks to Baseball Reference, find rosters for both teams at the following links:
